“An incredible forest track that follows the Sok River.”

This trail is the main path from the western entrance and allows access to the Ton Kiol Track
, which branches off at the end point.
The trail begins on a wide, well-maintained path that dives straight into the forest. Expect to see macaques, langurs, squirrels, peacocks, monitor lizards, snakes, and other wildlife. As you travel, you'll pass dense groves of bamboo that drape over the trail. Keep an eye out for swimming spots along the Sok River, especially if you're running in the hot season.
After the halfway point, you'll pass a small hut and the Wing Hin Waterfall. After this point, the trail becomes more difficult. Sure footing is important, and muddy conditions are common. Side trails to the river for swimming wind around the main path, which can make navigation confusing. Towards the end of the trail, about 4.5 km in, you'll pass the Bang Liap Nam Waterfall.
